Xyron + Core = one lucky recipient!
Hi there, Core’dinations friends. Vivian Keh here today with a Clean and Simple card for St. Patty’s Day. Most of my projects are usually anything but CAS, but I think it’s very important to stretch one’s crafty muscles now and then. It gives me an opportunity to appreciate the skills of folks who design in styles other than mine as well as a chance to see if it’s time to venture into new crafty territory.
For my card, I started out with a bright and happy hue from our Core’dinations “Vintage” Collection, plus a great cutting file for my Silhouette Cameo, #25132 by Sweet Afton. This cutting file has three great borders, including horseshoes and fun St. Patty’s text in addition to the pretty clover strand you see here. I adore accentuating edges of my Core’dinations Cardstock with a delicate sanding of the edges. With these more intricate die-cuts, I do the sanding with a light hand so as not to tear any of the stems.
Have I shared with you how much I adore my Xyron X Sticker Maker? A crafty friend online introduced me to this tool awhile back, and it now sits on my craft table at all times, making adhering strips like these a complete breeze.
My die-cuts went onto a background of Creme Brulee from our Graphic 45 Signature Series. I love this particular cream because it’s very fresh. For a bit of shine, I added some Glossy Accents from Ranger to the clover strip and some text that was also die-cut from my Silhouette, file #39508 by Jamie Koay.
And a few gems from my stash to liven up the white space a little bit but stay within the world of CAS. I rounded the top corner of my cream piece and my green base in order to bring the eye upward. Thanks so much for visiting with me here today!
